We are excited to receive support from Easter seals during our Help Center lunches & welcome all other Special Needs/Special Ability organizations to join us in serving members of our community.

SCHOOL COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER HOURS

Hope of the Valley is fortunate to receive assistance from student volunteers. We invite and welcome all students who have school community service requirements and hours they need to fulfill to perform their hours with us. These requirements could include but are not limited to BSN public health community service hours, internship hours, or public & private school school volunteer service work hours. Some of the universities we have worked with before include but are not limited to University of Phoenix, UEI College, and West Coast University.

GIFT IN KIND SERVICES

We are always in need of “Gift In Kind donations”, performing a free service such as hair cuts, yoga classes, dentistry, & optometry, professional services that our help center guests would normally not be able to get while in their current homeless situation.  Please contact Jonathan @ 818-804-5517, or email:jonathan@hopeofthevalley.org for more information on how to get scheduled on our volunteer calendar.

SERVICE LEARNING DAY ENCOUNTER WITH NOTRE DAME HIGH

Hope of the Valley has great synergy with many schools in the SFV community, we have been partnering with these schools to bring a service learning encounter to the students as well as the faculty. Don’t let your school miss out on this encounter that brings a component of hands on service work to our help center guests. Please be aware that we do have an age appropriate policy that starts with the middle school  & up.   Contact Jonathan @ 818-804-5517 to sign up your school up today.
